The Ponies defense held Roseville to 181 total yards. Big defensive plays started and ended the game with linebacker Zach Knox lowering a big blow to a Raider’s receiver that forced a fumble Tanner Lau picked up and took in for a touchdown. The game ended with a safety.
Running back Zach Knox rushed for 106 yards and 4 touchdowns while running back Nick Wanovich ran for an 86 yard touchdown and tight end Matt Anderson had a receiving touchdown.
